My display screen is crakced can i replace it on my own

Hi I am Vortash providing you are reasonable with tools and dont have an un steady hand yes easily .
It requires close inspection of the camera and a set of jewlers screwdirvers and patience .
A reseptical for all screws and a notepad to roughly sketch any areas that you are unsure of to refer to on re assembly . screens are usually attached by means of a plastic ribbon into a slot plug that has two clips one either side ease them out and the ribbon will be free dont just pull or the ribbon may break and the clips snap , you will probably need a pair of good tweezers to remove and replace this cable ..Be careful with the clips they snap very very easily ..
A replacemnet screen should be obtainable from Ebay Or Amazon quite cheaply .
One thing I will warn you off is static damage .
components in electronic equipment are highly suseptable to Static damage generated by the human body and surroundings .. one touch can destroy an Ic and your camera . you will need to be earthed to a static arm band strap to eliminate this . ( this is a strap that fits on your wrist that is connected to an earth point through a flexicable attached to the strap . they are quite long and give you ample work movement and can save you pounds from destroyed equipment ) hope this is of help regards Vortash

DS powers off during play

There is a ribbon cable that runs through the hinge. If the hinge is damaged, the ribbon cable can easily be damaged. If the ribbon cable is only slightly damaged, then movement will cause it to break the connection. When it loses connection, it will power off. You can test this by moving the top screen up and down a bunch to see if it shuts off more while doing this. To fix this problem, you will need a new top LCD screen installed by a qualified technician. The cost of the part is around $15, so use that as a baseline to know if you are getting a good price. Also, do not trust anyone without either credentials or experience, or they will very likely damage the console further.

Screen blank

use the towell trick! Wrap the 360 in 2 towells turn on and leave running for 15 minutes. It gets very hot but after the 15 minutes turn off the console and power it back on again and it should work. Dont know if this is a permanent fix but my 360 hasnt broken again so far. Dont ask me how but it works, google it if you like. It also cures the 3 red lights problem.
